What to Expect

Buduruwagala is about 5 km past Wellawaya on the Thanamalwila road. You will be downhill most of the way. Nice. The name Buduruwagala means “the rock with
the statue of Buddha” And this is exactly what it is. Seven figures are carved in this rock plus a massive 51 foot Buddha statue. Although there is no documented information about this site in the ancient scriptures, different historians have dated these statues from the 6th century to the late Anuradhapura period (between the 8th and 10th century). These carvings are in the Mahayana Buddhist style and belong to the Pallawa Sri Lankan art tradition. Next stop is the Handapanagala Reservoir. It has a length of 9.2 kilometers and borders on Lunugamvehera National park. From here we will 4WD you back to the resort.
